1906 4d registered envelope to Cape Town with a 2d added to pay the postage, cancelled by the very scarce WELBEDACHT FE 7 06 single ring canceller. On the back is an Oudtshoorn FE 7 transit and Cape Town 10 FE 06 arrival cancel. The cover has been opened for display. Frescura records the first use of this canceller in 1912, so this predates it by 6 years. A very fine cover from this village 12 miles from Oudtshoorn in the Olifants River Valley.
